"Receiving the Mobile Bay Times update is often the highlight of my day! I didn't realize until I ran into Chip that without a subscription, you do not receive all of the updates, and you run the risk of missing something especially interesting. We have basically only one source of local news so the Mobile Bay Times adds a much needed additional perspective on things. I consider the cost of my subscription well spent and a bargain."

"As a native of Mobile living a long way from home, I have come to rely on the Mobile Bay Times' and Chip Drago's timely and thorough coverage of the latest news in the Mobile area. Chip seems to particularly have his finger on Mobile's political pulse, and frequently has news well before the so-called "mainstream media" outlets do.  When you couple the great reporting with the immediate email alerts when the news breaks, the service can't be beat."
